9780465080991: Is God Happy?: Selected Essays
Críticas:

"Kirkus Reviews"
"Stimulating and provocative."

"Publishers Weekly"
"The word 'mordant' may have been invented to describe a writer such as the late Kolakowski, public intellectual, brilliant stylist, and prolific author.... Kolakowski knew history and the history of his chosen discipline, philosophy, and it informed his arguments with God and everybody else, conducted in bitingly ironic fashion. He deserves greater appreciation for the inimitable way he articulated the great moral questions that haunted European intellectuals after midcentury and before postmodernism disengaged the intelligentsia."
"The Wall Street Journal"
"[Kolakowski] was an intellectual in the best sense of that word: a scholar of vast learning, a writer with a gift for the clear and felicitous expression of complex ideas, and a man who didn't overestimate his own importance.... ["Is God Happy?"] is an excellent introduction to Kolakowski's writing. It is a treasure for Kolakowski's admirers, too.... The essays on communism and the left brim with arresting insights."
"The Nation"
"A valuable introduction to Kolakowski's extraordinary intellectual versatility."
"The American Spectator"
"A splendid collection.... Many of the essays in "Is God Happy?" are heroic efforts by Kolakowski to rescue crucial features of the Christian worldview.... [Kolakowski] was a beacon of light in a dark time, and even his earliest essays retain their ability to instruct and inspire."
"First Things"
"The eminent Polish philosopher Leszek Kolakowski is best known in the English-speaking world for his critique of Marxism. Yet his work is not a museum piece. "Is God Happy?," which compiles half a century of his essays (many published in English for the first time), reveals the continued relevance of his thought... Even Kolakowski's humor and irony, then, perform a serious purpose: They attempt to capture some essential aspect of the truth without emptying it of all sense of mystery."
"The Polish American Journal"
"A remarkable book.... All the essays are thought provoking....The late Kolakowski was one of the most renowned twentieth century intellectuals and philosophers. He had written essays and books for over fifty years, some of which were banned by the Communist party. Today we now have the pleasure of reading them in English, with an excellent translation by his daughter."

Reseña del editor:

The late Leszek Kolakowski was one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. A prominent anticommunist writer, Kolakowski was also a deeply humanistic thinker, and his meditations on society, religion, morality, and culture stand alongside his political writings as commentaries on intellectualand everydaylife in the twentieth century.
Kolakowski s extraordinary empathy, humor, and erudition are on full display in "Is God Happy?," the first collection of his work to be published since his death in 2009. Accessible and wide ranging, these essaysmany of them translated into English for the first timetestify to the remarkable scope of Kolakowski s work. From a provocative and deeply felt critique of Marxist ideology to the witty and self-effacing In Praise of Unpunctuality to a rigorous analysis of Erasmus model of Christianity and the future of religion, these essays distill Kolakowski s lifelong engagement with the eternal problems of philosophy and some of the most vital questions of our age.
